BOOKS

"Details Obscurs" published 2005 by les 400 Coups in 2005

 review by Michael Massman

 A retrospective of the work of Roger Lemoyne published by Les 400 Coups, Details obscurs brings together 52 of his most eloquent images from many of the world’s troubled regions. Although lyrical and touching, the black and white photographs in this book are not necessarily coffee-table fare. The subject is modern warfare and Lemoyne, who has documented the turmoil in Rwanda, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Israel and Palestine among others, vividly captures all its horror. In his distinguished tenure as a photojournalist Roger Lemoyne has always tried to show the intimate and human side of the conflict; the everyday lives of people who are not the subject of mainstream news stories, who in their marginalization are nearly invisible and whose lives have been entirely destroyed by these conflicts. In the spirit of the journalist and traveler Lemoyne says, “It comforts me to think that my photographs can contribute to our collective understanding of what transpires in other parts of the world.”

 

Détails obscurs

Photographie: Roger Lemoyne

Le photoreporter Roger Lemoyne a couvert bien des conflits depuis 15 ans. Balkans, Israël, Somalie, Zaïre, Afghanistan, Irak... Son travail s'est étendu à plus de 30 pays. Avec toujours le même souci : faire comprendre l'immense détresse des victimes des guerres... et la peur aussi ! Ses photos, échos de la brutalité de toutes les guerres, sont aussi une manifestation de la dignité humaine et de l'irréductible espoir.

Child Soldiers

Edited by Leora Kahn. PowerHouse, $45 (120p) ISBN 9781576874554

Activist and editor Kahn (Darfur: Twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan) has compiled a powerful illustrated volume documenting the lives of child soldiers, who currently number up to 300,000 worldwide―in places including Iraq, Afghanistan, the Philippines, Columbia, across Africa and in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Their stories are told through six brief essays and more than 60 unforgettable photographs (from almost three dozen photographers), reproduced in large, high-quality images that record clearly the faces of children standing guard, marching or resting, laden with gear and weapons. Their expressions are haunting, whether fearful, triumphant, proud or dazed. In one of six essays, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, makes it clear what's at stake: "terrorizing and abducting young children, putting them through brutal rites of initiation, and forcing them to kill community members, sometimes even family members, or be executed." Jo Becker of Human Rights Watch explains how others "join out of desperation"; after poverty or war drives them from their homes, many children "perceive armed groups as their best chance for survival―or simply a guarantee of at least one meal per day." Activists and politicians should take note of this devastating volume. 65 color and b&w photos. (Nov.)
